BJP dismisses govt ads on diesel price, LPG curbs as "lies"

BJP on Monday dismissed as "lies and propaganda" the advertisements put out by the government in newspapers on diesel price hike and rationing of LPG cylinders and maintained high taxation is the real reason behind the increase.



New Delhi: BJP on Monday dismissed as "lies and propaganda" the advertisements put out by the government in newspapers on diesel price hike and rationing of LPG cylinders and maintained high taxation is the real reason behind the increase.
"As the government has no convincing reasons to impose massive diesel price hike, it is now putting huge advertisements as propaganda. There are many issues addressed and claims made by the government (in the advertisements) which are not based on facts," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

He claimed India does not buy oil at international crude prices but at prices agreed to as part of long-standing agreements with countries like Iran.

"Instead of citing the international crude prices, why the government is not citing the price of Indian crude basket, which is a relevant parameter?" Javadekar said.

BJP maintained that without taxes diesel will be available in India at Rs 30 and petrol at Rs 35.
